PUBLICATION OF A SEISMIC-TECTONIC MAP

Framework

The production of a seismic-tectonic map of Tunisia is one of the objectives of the National Program for Seismic Risk Reduction. It results from bringing together several seism-related topics and other fields of earth science.

Purpose of the seismic-tectonic map

A seismic-tectonic map will serve as a basis to draw up seism source areas that are used for the assessment of seismic hazard and for seismic zoning, both of which are essential for issuing regulation concerning anti-seismic construction.

Design of the map

The seismic-tectonic map will be the fruit of scientific cooperation between National Institute of Meteorology (Tunisie) and the Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology at Skopje (Republic of Macedonia) .
